A Memoir from India

IMG_1567

I’m never one to read romance. There’s nothing wrong with romance, but if I’m going to take the time to read, it’s going to be something that will stay with me. I love the movie “You’ve Got Mail.” When Meg Ryan said, “You are what you read.” It was an aha moment for me, for I believe there’s some truth to that. So, if you get a book recommendation from me, it will be something I couldn’t put down, but will most likely fall into historical fiction, non-fiction, and memoir. They are my go to’s. This is a memoir.

I think too often we grow complacent here in the United States with our faith. I love to read soul stirring missionary stories, that remind us we serve a living God who performs miracles. This book is one of those stories. It is a book you will find hard to put down and reveals how God used this young woman’s childhood to prepare her to serve in the darkest places of India, and the miracles she witnessed by being obedient to the call. Check it out!

From the Book Barn:

DSC_0157As a young girl, my favorite place to read was in the horse stall. I’d curl up on a bundle of straw with a flashlight and devour the written word. Peggy, my horse loved the company, and I never worried about her backing up on me. I’d like to post some recommendations from time to time. Lately, the subject has been hearing from God and this book is a great example of a young woman who heard from God in her dreams. Her dream led her to a mission in Haiti, saving children from slavery. I couldn’t put this one down. If you are looking for a great inspirational story of how one person can make an enormous impact by stepping out in faith, ┬ápick this one up and give it a try. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
